About this tab version
Tab and chords. It's based on the version here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVkq9bnq4U8. I aimed to make the tab as close to the song as possible, and simply based the chords above the tab off the notes going on in the tab. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
if all these chords look too complicated, simply click the "simplify chords" button on the left :))
